I have a CD with Benny Goodman performing and composers conducting concertos.
This recording was formerly release on vinal disk called "Meeting at the
Summit" The CD adds the famous recording of Bartok Contrasts with Bartok at
the piano and Joseph Zigetti playing violin.
The other works on the recording are: Bernstein Prelude Fugue and Riffs,
Stravinsky Ebony Concerto, Copland Concerto, Morton Gould Derivations for
Band. This is not to say that they were all commissioned by Benny. I know
the Stravinsky was commissioned by Woody Herman.
I didn't know that Benny commissioned the Poulenc Sonata.
